Barrel Text Necklace

Barrel Text Necklace, Old Rose, 3.0 cm x 1.3 cm. Mixed media with precious metals. This necklace is made from recycled hand dyed paper, with silver and 24 carat gold leaf and with beads made from bone and silver. It is strung using a 16″ round black leather cord. All the pieces in the Peace Collection have texts in the design; this one uses a Buddhist prayer, and reads – ‘Evoking the presence of the great compassion, let us fill our hearts with our own compassion – towards ourselves and towards all living beings. Let us pray that all living beings realise that they are all brothers and sisters, all nourished from the same source of life.’
